James Eddy: Credit-card swipe fees cost everyone dearly, need oversight

“Just like the utility companies that provide electricity, water, and gas to our locations, we have no alternatives when it comes to swipe fees and no choice but to build them into our pricing,” writes James Eddy, a third-generation restaurateur. “The bottom line is that everything is more expensive because of swipe fees — no matter how you pay. It’s time for a change to the system.”
